    The speedo, ABS and TC sound like a wheel speed sensor is not operating correctly. Either the sensor, wiring harness, or the speed ring itself need checking for damage, dirt ! or insecurity.

    Selt belt warning buzzer sounds like the switch in the belt clip recepticle is not operating. Either fix the switch or cut the wires that go into the drivers anchorage and join together if necessary (can't remember if they are join or break to silence)

    So the light was on before the bearing was replaced and when the bearing was repaired the light went out? So your 'current problems' are not there now?

    speedo readings are picked up from the ABS sensor...

    Have you had the car on a diagnostic machine??...it could be anything from another dodgy wheel sensor, to a dodgy panel or CIM fault...

    the sensor is part of the internals of the wheel bearing, so it's not really serviceable....but you could check the connectors.....

    if not, it's a really good session on the diagnostic machine..
